2013 Gambling Challenge - Super Bowl
The betting windows are open for Super Bowl wagering!
I am going to allow bets to be submitted via PM, but it is not a requirement.
Regarding Super Bowl Wagering: As in previous years, I have added some prop bets for the Super Bowl to make things a little more interesting. These will be; 1st Half spread, 1st Half Money Line, 1st Half Over/Under, First Team to Score and Last Team to Score.
The 1st Half Spread and Over/Under will be bet like normal bets, the 1st Half Money Line and First/Last Team to Score will be bet like a money line bet. As all other bets go, the Min/Max on these is $500/$5,000 (unless you are all-in)
Any bets entered with the wrong line or wrong teams, or posted after the scheduled kickoff time (5:30 PM CST) will be void!
Eliminated last week:
PLEASE read the rules here.
The number one rule you need to remember is that editing your bets is not allowed and is subject to immediate disqualification.
Remember that you must place a wager every 3 weeks at minimum. If you go without betting for 3 consecutive weeks, you will be disqualified.
The following people must bet this week or be disqualified for violating this rule.
Above all else, lets have some fun!
How to read the lines
Thu 9/6 New Orleans Saints +6 +223 OVER 52.5
(Date, VISITING TEAM: Point Spread, Money Line, Over/Under)
7:30 PM Indianapolis Colts -6 -243 UNDER 52.5
(Time, HOME TEAM: Point Spread, Money Line, Over/Under)
How to bet the Money Line
First off, a money bet is a straight up win/lose bet. No points involved, so of course there are odds payoffs.
If you want to bet on the Saints, you will win $223 for every $100 that you bet. Conversely, for the Colts, you will win $100 for every $243 that you bet.
In other words, the team with the - money line is the favorite (therefore lower payout) and the team with the + is the under dog.
PLEASE, format your bets like this:
Colts (-6) $5000
Chiefs (+142 money) $1000
Chiefs/Texans (Under 38) $2000
Old Dog $16,000
Bill Lundberg $0
DaKCMan AP $0
Dave Lane $0
Ebolapox (H5N1) $0
Jewish Rabbi $0
KC Dan $0
keg in kc $0
Lil Momma $0
Mr. Flopnuts $0
mr. tegu $0
Talking Can $0

Chiefnj2: "Sure it's hard to do, that's why you need an elite QB. Just like its hard to lead your team to a victory from a 4 score deficit. Some guys can do it, others get traded to the Chiefs."
